How to make slow cooker 5-ingredient Sriracha chicken

Print this recipe
I have had Sriracha chicken that combines Sriracha sauce with honey, sometimes maple syrup or, at times, just straight-up sugar. To be honest, I wasn't crazy about any of them. While I liked the spicy, the sweet always seemed to take over and leave a cloying taste in my mouth. In the recipe below, I've remedied that by using marmalade, which is sweet but not sickeningly so and still leaves lots of spice.
I can't decide what's best about this recipe — the fact that it uses only five ingredients or that you can just toss everything into the slow cooker with no browning or precooking required. Both are great, but still not as good as the dish that will be coming out of your slow cooker in just four hours.
